That a profit-minded company like VEX is drop^ping so low in profits is significative of recent trends in the European airline industry. Everyone is starting to imitate the low-cost no-frill carriers like easyJet and Ryanair (even SWISS!), but without having the necessary structure to do so.

VEX is in no way a low-cost no-frill carrier and should try to keep its distinct character.
